Safaree Says Robbery Left Him Severely Traumatized

Safaree Samuels says his recent robbery has left him severely traumatized.

Nicki Minaj estranged ex-boyfriend Safaree was robbed at gunpoint early Monday morning by two men. The “Love and Hip Hop: New York” star appeared on The Angie Martinez show hours later to share his ordeal while shedding tears. The good news for him is that he filed a police report and the two men were captured following a high-speed car chase a few hours later. Despite his robbery suspects being behind bars, SB says the ordeal left him traumatized to the extent he is shaking up his inner circle.

“Seeing your life flash b4 you’re eyes is a life changing experience,” he wrote on Twitter. “Nothing funny about it. It’s probably only funny to ppl who don’t have anything or never experienced it. My uncle was killed in a robbery so when thinking about my situation all I think about is him.”

Safaree says he didn’t cry because he lost over a $180,000 worth of jewelry and cash, but because how traumatic the experience was. “I’m not crying over lost jewelry, that’s material but being face and not knowing if you’re about to get shot in the back of your head is the most traumatic thing I’ve ever had to deal with,” he added. “Thank God I’m still alive they want me broken but All they did was make a beast out of me!!”

Safaree is currently promoting his viral new single “Hunnid” which is his biggest hit to date.
